Animals in their Habitats
Posted on 03/04/2015
AnimalsThe third grade students of Room 311 recently spent a month engaged in an in-depth study of various animals and their habitats, including the Meerkat, Tiger, Gray Wolf, Great White Shark, Emperor Penguin, Macaroni Penguin, Red Eyed Tree Frog, and Bull Frog. Using informational non-fiction texts and the Internet, each student gathered information on their animal’s habitat, food preference, adaptations, and physical appearance. They were then required to organize the information they gathered using EmPower paragraph templates and draft detailed, well-structured reports. Students then added supporting organizational features (ex. Table of Contents, Glossary, etc…) to strengthen their reports.

On Friday, January 23rd, friends and family were invited to a habitat extravaganza where students shared what they learned along with their reports and a diorama they created at home to represent their animal’s habitat. Both students and their guests learned a lot of new information about some of the world’s most fascinating creatures!
